Blurry Vision Can be Corrected, especially in your business.
Life is filled with opportunities. If you're not careful, however, you can allow the mistakes from the past to cripple you, leaving you struggling to take advantage of the opportunities in front of you. If you've found yourself in the position of looking back too often, consider changing your perspective. Your life vision should be like a car: a big front windshield, an array of opportunities spread out in front of you, with smaller mirrors that allow you to take a look at what's going on beside you and behind you. Instead of looking at the path that others are on or focusing primarily on your past, look forward instead--and see what amazing opportunities are only a short distance away. There is more than enough business for everyone, you just need to be crystal clear about who your client is and what the benefits of working with you are.
Checking Your Surroundings
Take a look around you. What's good about the place you are now? There are times when the answer will be, "very little." Other times, you'll find that the view in front of you includes incredible people and situations that can help shape your goals and your plans. Chances are, you have a destination in mind . Are you on the road to that destination, or have you taken a detour? Look around, check your current surroundings, and see whether or not you're in a position to do the things you most want to do. It might surprise you to see just what you're able to do with where you already are and some extra help!
Changing Your Surroundings to Change Your Life
When the scenery outside your windshield doesn't match up with the destination you have in mind, it's time to change your surroundings! Taking a look at these key considerations will help make it easier to reach your overall goals.
Look for new opportunities. Find a road that will take you where you want to go, then transform the things around you. Sometimes it is closer than you think.
Get into new discussions with new people. Look for people who can help shape your future through mentorship or by simply expanding your world. A network of like-minded people can make a huge difference-reach out for help.
Get comfortable with risk. Your road won't always be a straight one. Getting comfortable with risk will make you more comfortable along your journey.
You wouldn't drive your car backwards, and you don't want to pilot your life that way, either. Take the time to take a good look at your surroundings, then dig in and see where you can go next. You may be amazed by the opportunities that open up in front of you. If you need help shaping that journey, contact us to learn how we can help.
